NOTE TO BREEDERS
Al Gordy of Barksdale Labradoodles has worked with Deborah Comeaux from the USM Institute for Disability Studies and supports their program by donating Doods & Community Support. Al has made us aware of their current need for a dog and says that they would either be willing to accept a donated Dood or purchase one.
This is what Deborah Comeaux is looking for:
"Regarding the service animal candidate the dog can be up to 24 months of age, calm temperament, high trainability, good focus, people oriented, suitable for young children, sturdy build (for tethering), no aggression or fearfulness.
This candidate will be trained for a child with downs syndrome. She is six years old and tends to wander off (even at home). In addition, the family has members with peanut allergies, diabetes, and seizure disorder. The family is apparently very active. If we are able to start with a young adult dog, we can hopefully work with and place with the family sooner.
This will be an intense and complex team formation due to the nature of the familys needs and the number of children in the household. We will focus on the child with downs first then determine whether we can have the service animal multi-task. "
If you feel you can help, please contact Deborah Comeaux directly at Deborah.Comeaux@usm.edu .

Garlic Valley Farms - Garlic for Human and Dog Health (thanks to Linda from Timshell Farm for sending this in)
'Numerous medical studies show how garlic juice reduces cholesterol and helps the heart.
Worldwide people take garlic pills, eat garlic cloves and spray garlic juice on food for good health.
For dogs it does even more:
1. Keeps dogs from having worms and gets rid of worms that are there.
2. Keeps fleas and ticks off dogs by getting into the dog's system and creating a garlic odor that fleas and ticks detect and avoid the dog altogether.
3. Reduces a dog's cholesterol level for good heart function.'
